-- we begin this week, i should say, with america's middle class. as you likely know, ground zero for the failing policies of recent american politics. we're, of course, talking about the millions struggling to make ends meet, while paying the price for so many of america's outdated systems. whether that's two wars with no clear exit strategy. you know the narrative. funding a financial structure that takes money from the middle class as opposed to lending it to them. or broken health care system. not to mention a massive, inefficient, opaque government that continues to run record deficits and be dominated by special interests in a culture of cultural expediency. those middle-class families are the ones seeing layoffs at the astounding pace we have reported over and over again on this show and so many other places. they're also the people who are either losing their homes or they're stuck in those homes because the value of their mortgage is so much more than the actual value of the property at this point. compare a family of four in 2007 and compare that same family in 1971. whe

of the forces for freedom and equality in america's second civil war. racism and segregation and depression of african-americans did not end with the end of the first civil war in 1865 and the passage of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments. in the decades that followed, segregation, and the separation of races was enforced by law and by practice. slowly over the alt -- long years after the civil war, the inconsistencies of these policies, with the sacrifices made in the civil war, and the clear mandate in our declaration of independence that all men are created equal, for america to look into a mirror to see that the image of america that was in that mirror did not reflect the america we wanted, did not live up to the dreams our founding fathers had. we needed another civil war. this time not a violent one on the battlefield of virginia, but a war of ideas and of values, a war of protest to shatter that mirror, to shatter that image and create a new reflection of our hopes for a more perfect union. revolutions need leaders, leaders prepared as our founding fathers were, pledged their lives

that america's competitive advantage is in financial products and financial engineering. and that these banks do produce a lot of foreign armies for the u.s. and if we start really knocking down wall street, which is getting competitive advantage to the germans, british, japanese or whoever, i don't agree with that. but you know, i think it underlies a lot of the reluctance of the administration to really get to too tough with wall street that they say it's like yesterday was good for general motors is good for america. now it's what's good for goldman sachs is good for america. not necessary goal but because they are so unpopular. but what's good for jpmorgan chase is good for america. >> no line has been drawn. there's been no edition. basically mathematics. so therefore says that as it may be, deficit. since we are tiptoeing past the cemetery nobody wants to do the math. >> there are some people, the argument here is that banks haven't dealt with a bad debt problem. they're still sitting on their balance sheet so we will end up like japan presumably. i think there is very respected people,

are against, but what you are for. the brilliance of your contract with america back in 1994 is that you had the presence of mind to lay out for the american people, whether they agreed or disagreed, you laid out an agenda of 10 things that you and your party would do if america gave you the chance to run the house. you were for something, as opposed to simply being against something. where is that in the part of your party right now? >> id is not covered as much because of the nature of the news media and because republicans do not push it hard enough. john boehner's plan was pretty good, they had a pretty good health plan that was modest within the congressional budget office, but to get anything covered like that, you have got to be maniacal in talking about it until all of your friends think that you are crazy and the average person is just beginning to hear you. republicans do not quite have the discipline and focus to say on these topics the way that they should. another point on which i agree with you entirely, i have an article coming out next month where i outline a new approach to

occupation of cuba territory. most of latin america history have some knowledge of castro's hostility towards the base. but what is generally not known is that from the early 1900s to the present, guantanamo has also been a sight for diplomatic accommodation, compromise, and cooperation. the terms dictated by the platt amendment only stated that the united states would buy or lease naval or station, buy or lease them. in cuba. it did not specify a number of such stations, nor their locations. that was a matter of negotiated compromise between the cuban president and theodore rooseve roosevelt, that the united states would obtain really only one major naval station and that would be guantanamo, not havana. now, obviously, the united states has always had the upper hand in these negotiations. when i say diplomatic compromise, i'm not suggesting that the two parties started on a level playing field. that certainly would not be the case. the second major compromise occurred in 1934 when the united states abrogated the platt amendment, which had become an increasingly unpopular with the various se

for $10 million ahead of what it called america's birth certificate. the math that gave america its name. that $10 million was the most the library had ever spent on anything. it was also almost $2 million more than had recently been paid for an original copy of the declaration of independence, and that kind of caught my attention. i never heard of the map or had seen the map but the library seemed to think it was the most valuable piece and the market even seemed to think it was more than an original copy of the declaration of independence. so, i wanted to find out more and at this point i was thinking maybe i would do an article, short piece for the alana tech. so i did some research and got the basics of the story pretty quickly. early in the 1500's in the eastern part of france in the mountains there was a small group of scholars among them the mapmaker martin and he had come across letters and at least one early sailors chart showing the coastlines of the new world and they decided that what they were reading about and see on the charts was not a part of asia as most people had assu
